Stepping Out

Stepping out of a cocooned existence

Something inside is showing resistance

Voices whispering the consequences 

Teasing me tentatively back to my senses

Stepping out to seek normality 

Infused with a kind of irrationality

Wanting to wade into a waiting world

Fearing the virus could again be unfurled

Stepping out to breath with other souls

Daring not to breach critical controls 

Glimpses of faces only seen on screens

Praying for immunity and viable vaccines

Stepping out to a world that’s been missing

Instead of just sitting and reminiscing 

Sounds and sights will seem so fresh and new

The importance of life now clearly in view.
